While we're on the subject of hay, what about fescue?
I know fescue is a big no-no for pregnant mare (or mare you hope to get pregnant) but what about for your pasture puffs? Right now I'm feeding Bermuda because that's easiest to get around here, but I've been wanted to get some Timothy too so I can 1/2 and 1/2 the Timothy and the Bermuda. Partially for colic avoidance reasons and partially due to having and older mare who I think could benefit from the extra nutrients in the Timothy. In my search for the a Timothy source I ran across someone selling Fescue for about the same price I'm getting my Bermuda. Does anyone feed Fescue? Pros? Cons? Is it any better or worse than Bermuda?
